  • History of Tamil Legal Eagles Tuesday, 01 December 2020 08:40 PM

    Just only one Tamil Name in the long list of new Judges. In the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and up to80s there were scores of top Tamil Lawyers, some of them educated at Oxford, Cambridge, or London were dominating the legal circles in Colombo. And in Jaffna the four Magistrate Courts had frequent spellbinding performances by high quality Jaffna Lawyers. Now , the golden age for Tamil Lawyers and Judges is gone, and this is permanent.

    Judges should not have to swear an oath to the president, but the country...

    More 'sidewinders'!!!

    Birds of a feather, flock together.

    Birds of feather flock together. The people has lost it's respect for the law in this country.

    Any connection between with recent verdicts against governing politicians and these promotions?

    Panikam Kusalan Wednesday, 02 December 2020 03:23 PM

    We do not need a legal system, neither a law college. Wasting public money to educate lawyers - a parliament is sufficient for all! Close down all courts and law colleges.

    All the presidents men?
